I travel up to Challenge, California with Mike to see the property that he inherited after Lona passed away last year.
I picked up Mike early that morning and I drove 3hrs past Sacramento, north toward Yuba City then up to the former logging community of Challenge.
Lona, her husband and only child Raymond lived at this house since the 1950's(?). Lona's husband was a hairdresser while Lona worked did accounting work for the National Forest Service.
Once we arrived in the area we stopped by the cemetery where Lona and her husband are buried. At the house we toured the 25 acres and the pond where the house resides. After a couple of hours and after lunch we head back to the Bay Area. Mike drives Lona's car back to Milpitas.
